Love Bay Cove Human Services
Rehabilitation Specialist (Former Employee) – Jamaica Plain, MA – December 26, 2015
My position at Bay Cove was a rehabilitation specialist, more commonly called worker or case manager, though our work was not managing cases as much as it was educating and rehabilitating people with mental health illnesses. I learned a great deal from BCHS and from the clients we served like conflict resolution, relationship building, medication management, emotional regulation, boundaries, problem-solving, etc. Management was exceptional as well as were my coworkers--from director to rehabilitation specialists. We worked individually and also came together as a team when needed. We worked from a persons strength and person in environment perspective. With that said, the hardest part of the job was to manage my own expectations of the clients, as they may not have the foresight to common problems in the environment. Overall, I could not ask for a better non-profit.
